Cultural sector

Many of the events held by the Library are a result of collaboration with community arts agencies and groups, such as the Australian Poetry Slam or the Digital Fringe Festival.

Culture Victoria

The Culture Victoria (CV) website enables Victorian cultural organisations to bring their collection objects and resources together in the form of media-rich stories. CV was developed as part of the Victorian Cultural Network (VCN) project, a collaboration between state agencies including the Library, managed by Arts Victoria, and supported by the Victorian Government through Arts Victoria and the Community Support Fund.


The Library works in partnership with other Victorian cultural agencies to provide shared infrastructure, including high-speed data networks through the Victorian Cultural Network, payroll services and disaster recovery capacity. The Library also provides shared IT services to the Wheeler Centre and an online catalogue system for Museum Victoria.
